The baulk walls were defined and leveled. After, pickpasses continued moving north to south. The soil continues to be filled with many small rocks and roots. Locus 4 was declared across the entire extension. The soil is consistent with Locus 2 and is a yellowish-brown clay like soil filled with rocks and roots. Opening photos and elevations were taken as well as aerial photographs.
